Bodysurf Scotland present:


25th August - 1st September 2007



A limited number of bursary places on offer for experienced dancers
wishing to participate in Dance/Video/Improvisation

Bursaries are available from £50 - £100 off the standard price of £250.


With acclaimed international artists and teachers

Kirstie Simson Katrina McPherson Simon Fildes

An intensive course for dancers & video dance-makers interested in
exploring the creative interface between improvised dance & video dance

For examples of Kirstie, Katrina and Simon’s current collaborative
project, visit and select the link.

To take place at venues and locations in and around the Findhorn
Foundation Community, in rural North East Scotland – with it’s
beaches, duneland, woodlands, expansive summer skies.

Daily Schedule: Each day will commence with a physical practice for all
the workshop participants led by Kirstie. The session will
consist of simple warm up exercises to awaken the body and sharpen the
senses. The remainder of the day will consist of focused
practical sessions facilitated by Kirstie, Katrina and Simon looking at
different issues for dancing and filming. There will be times for the
pursuit of personal interests and reflection that can be brought back
and shared with the group. There will be open times of dancing when
cameras might or might not be present.

Course Aims: Our aim as facilitators will be to seek a perfect
balance between teaching, experimentation, enquiry and support. The
nature of improvisation is process, on-going investigation and the
practice of giving. We will look at ways in which improvisation can be
used to generate video dance material – that is, work that will be
experienced on-screen. We will also explore how camera and editing
techniques can capture the characteristics of improvised dance
performance – spontaneity, energy, presence, connection to the
audience. The whole week will be focused around investigation, geared
towards generating ideas, questions and debate.

Dancer or Video Maker? People can opt to attend the workshop as a
dancer, or video dance-maker, or both. Some people may move between the
two areas of activity. During some parts of each day, the entire group
will work and watch together, and at other times, smaller
groups will form to explore particular ideas, tasks or projects. We
will have a number of studios and indoor locations available to us,
although it is anticipated that much of the work will take place
outside, in the many beautiful and interesting locations in and
around the Findhorn Foundation site.

Those participants who wish to work with video should come with some
experience of filming and editing, although technical support will be
on hand.

Equipment: Video equipment will be supplied in the form of Sony Z1
cameras, as well as small, tapeless cameras and digital editing
systems loaded with Final Cut Pro. Participants are also encouraged to
bring their own cameras and laptops for editing if they wish.

Preparation: Participants interested in joining this workshop can come
with ideas they wish to pursue and they can also come empty handed but
curious. However, everyone is invited to come with a
spirit of open-mindedness, so that this week can hold surprises and
discoveries for us all.

August 3 -16, 2008 in Carlisle, PA

Two of the country's most highly regarded classical ballet institutions,
Pennsylvania Ballet and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, will introduce an
artistic collaboration entitled Beyond Technique, August 3-16, 2008 at Central
Pennsylvania Youth Ballet's state-of-the-art studios in Carlisle, PA. Pennsylvania
Ballet's Artistic Director Roy Kaiser, and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet's
Founder and Artistic Director Marcia Dale Weary, are pleased to announce the
inaugural summer of their distinctive two-week, full-day, dual intensive, which will
include morning technique classes and various afternoon and evening workshops,
rehearsals, seminars and other activities designed to extend the usual boundaries of
dance training.

In many ways, the inception of the Beyond Technique collaboration was predestined.
"It is the fulfillment of a dream I have had for a long time," says Barbara
Weisberger, Pennsylvania Ballet's Founder, who will serve as Artistic Advisor of the
program. In addition to the long-standing respect between the two Pennsylvania-based
companies, the most inherent tie can be traced to the sustained relationship between
Marcia Dale Weary and Ms. Weisberger, which began when she was Central Pennsylvania
Youth Ballet's first guest teacher nearly a half-century ago.

The announcement of the Beyond Technique program coincides with a period of
considerable growth and revitalization within Pennsylvania Ballet. In June 2007, the
Board of Directors approved the purchase of a building on North Broad Street. After
the completion of remarkable architectural renovation, this building will serve as a
permanent home for the Company and, once again, its own school. In November 2007,
Pennsylvania Ballet returned to New York's City Center after a 22 year absence for a
gratifying engagement showcasing the diversity and strength of its repertoire with
two dynamic programs. A few weeks later, the Company unveiled its new production of
George Balanchine's The Nutcracker to critical and audience acclaim. "With its first
new setting of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in two decades, the Pennsylvania Ballet
raked in its highest-ever box-office receipts. Not only has the ballet achieved a
peace and stability few, if any, predicted - but also real ambition has returned,"
says The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Over the past 52 years Central Pennsylvania Ballet has grown from a small local
dancing school to an internationally renowned classical ballet school and student
performing company. Today, with studios in the historic Barn and the nearby
Warehouse, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet continues to provide exceptional dance
training for beginning to career-entry level dancers, not only from Central
Pennsylvania but from across the United States and other countries around the world.
Many students from Weary's extensive roster have gone on to dance professionally
including Pennsylvania Ballet Principal Dancer Zachary Hench, New York City Ballet's
Ashley Bouder, Pacific Northwest Ballet's Noelani Pantastico and San Francisco
Ballet's Tina Le Blanc, among others.

In August 2001, Joseph Carmen for The New York Times said, "London, Paris, St.
Petersburg and New York are well-known for their first rate ballet academies,
training some of the best dancers in the classical form. Add to that list Carlisle,
PA - a town with fewer than 20,000 people. Marcia Dale Weary and her Central
Pennsylvania Youth Ballet have produced dancers well known to the ballet world."

The Beyond Technique intensive will accept up to twenty career entry-level dancers,
ages 14-21, who are soundly trained in classical ballet, interested in other dance
forms and arts disciplines, and inspired by the opportunity to apply their training
in a vigorous choreographic setting. Chosen dancers will be invited to join the
members of Pennsylvania Ballet II, who will be in residence throughout the program.

During the two-week intensive, those selected will attend morning technique classes
that concentrate on ballet, pointe, men's class, partnering, and modern dance.
Afternoon and evening activities will focus on Learning Ballet Repertory: from the
late 18th century to Balanchine and beyond; Movement, Music and Dance-Making;
Looking at Dance: history and performance; and the setting of an original ballet on
the Beyond Technique group of dancers by Matthew Neenan, Pennsylvania Ballet's
Choreographer in Residence.

The full day schedule will be led by a distinguished faculty, guest artists and
other leaders in the dance field, including: Ruth Andrien, Elizabeth Aldrich, Carol
Bartlett, William DeGregory, Robert Greskovic, Rafael Grigorian, Tamara Hadley,
Darla Hoover, Roy Kaiser, Marcia Dale Weary, and Barbara Weisberger.

Further detailed information is available by contacting William DeGregory, Artistic
Director of Pennsylvania Ballet II at 215.551.7000, ext. 1239 or online at <> . Dancers selected from the pool of
applicants will be invited to audition or, in some cases, submit an audition tape
along with the required written recommendations from teachers, artistic directors or
others who have first-hand knowledge of the applicant's work.

Founded in 1963 by Balanchine student and protégée Barbara Weisberger, Pennsylvania
Ballet is one of the nation's leading ballet companies. Headquartered in
Philadelphia, the Company's annual local season features six programs of classic
favorites and contemporary works, in addition to this season's new production of the
Philadelphia holiday tradition, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker. For more
information, call 215.551.7000 or visit <>
